Librivox recording of Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter.
Read by Mary Anderson
Pollyanna tells the story of Pollyanna Whittier, a young girl who goes to live with her wealthy Aunt Polly after her father’s death. Pollyanna’s philosophy of life centers around what she calls “The Glad Game”: she always tries to find something to be glad about in every situation, and to always do without delay whatever she thinks is right. With this philosophy, and her own sunny personality, she brings so much gladness to her aunt’s dispirited New England town that she transforms it into a pleasant, healthy place to live. Eventually, however, even Pollyanna’s robust optimism is put to the test when she loses the use of her legs in an accident. (From Wikipedia)

A mind opening look into how much women could have been repressed in bygone days.
This is a very important book. Even though this is fiction do not doubt that something can be learned by reading or hearing how this was written. As I listened to this recording of Eleanor H. Porter's Pollyanna it showed me many signs that there had been a huge amount female repression in the past by both the way the story unfolds and its many instances of archaically worded sentences.

Charming story! Though the heroine is a young girl, her appeal extends to boys and adults too.
Mary Anderson's clear and engaging recording make the story a delight to listen to. A great choice for the whole family!
